Great location overlooking Charlotte Amalie. Rooms are a little dated but well maintained. Excellent restaurants on property. Great views of cruise ships coming into St Thomas. Great pool area with view of cruise ships. Walking distance to downtown shopping and Havensight area. All staff was very friendly and attentive.

Unfortunately the resort has seen better days. Kind of reminds me of when a resort is just about to call...

My family and I stayed here for a week and it was the perfect spot! The location is awesome, it's perfectly situated next to downtown, at night you can even hear the music from some of the clubs. It's also conveniently located next to the food store and Kmart. Also, only a 15-20 min drive to Magens Bay! We rented...

This resort was lovely, a bit of a "mature" guests at our time of visit. The room was huge, view delightful, close enough to town to walk if your adventurous (we walked to town took a taxi back). The front desk staff were very pleasant, concierge a bit aloof, I think they see lots of folks come and go and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bluebeard's Castle is an historic property dating back to the 1600's. The resort occupies an entire hilltop with spectacular views overlooking the harbor and town of Charlotte Amalie. Its signature red rooftops are among the first sights for arriving cruise passengers.The resort includes a centuries-old fortress bearing the name "Bluebeard," after the infamous pirate, and check-in takes place in the former residence of the Danish governor of the island. This tropical paradise is the perfect place for a private getaway as it is set on a secluded hilltop and overlooks the harbor of St. Thomas. Bluebeard's Castle is centrally located in the most desirable part of the island with world class shopping minutes away. With only a short drive from some of the most popular beaches in the Caribbean where you can enjoy boating, scuba diving, snorkeling and windsurfing. The island itself offers a wonderful assortment of duty-free shopping, world-class restaurants (including the top-rated ROOM WITH A VIEW on location!), hot night spots, and a variety of local flavor to satisfy every taste. This resort features history, breathtaking views, and easy access to town. Beaches are literally minutes away so you can visit them all including easy ferry rides to St. John and the British Virgin Islands (Tortola and Virgin Gorda). You will see why owners at the resort are passionate about their units. It is this passion that will once again be the reason that Bluebeard's Castle will become a sought after destination resort. Many lucky RCI members will take advantage of this now! The resort is in the midst of a historic multi-million dollar remodel that will change all that you have heard. The proof is found in our regular maintenance reports as well as our news and picture sections. Also, schedules of on-resort dining are now posted in these reports. Owners are excited about what the future holds and you should be as well. Spread the word. ... more   less
